Discover the Danger of an Acidic Body
Written by Sandy H

Health and healing is based on the notion of balance. A person is in balance internally, when a balance exists between acid and alkaline. Acid alkaline balance in the body is the most critical balance in the body and is required to ensure proper health, energy, and vitality.

Why?

Because all the body’ s regulatory mechanisms including breathing, circulation, digestion and hormone product work to maintain the delicate internal acid alkaline balance.

In order that you may understand what is meant by an alkaline condition and an acid condition, think about vinegar (an acid) and lye (an alkali). Vinegar is acid in reaction, while lye is alkaline. They are directly opposite in character. If just the right proportion of these two products is brought together, a substance will result that is neither acid nor alkaline. Such a compound is said to be neutral.

As the acid substances increase in the body, the alkalinity decreases.

To better understand the relationship between acid and alkaline, know that there is a normal pH value in each body compartment (e.g., extra-cellular fluids, intracellular fluids, plasma).

You can measure the pH range in saliva and urine, but the blood pH is the most important indicator of the body’ s internal conditions. Just as our body temperature must be maintained at 98.6 degrees, the pH of plasma (pH of the plasma of the whole blood=conventional “blood” pH) is controlled at 7.4 (7.36-7.45). This range of 7.36 and 7.45 is vital to person’s well being. The body will go through great lengths to maintain the appropriate, slightly alkaline, nature of its internal environment.

Just as you feel sick or tired when your body’ s temperature changes one degree in either direction, if the pH range of the blood deviates too far to the acid side, oxygen levels decrease and cellular metabolism stops. In other words, cells die. The body dies.

When a body’ s pH becomes too acidic, it’s more vulnerable to degenerative diseases as bacteria and viruses are able to enter and thrive in an acidic environment.

Let’s see what happens when the body is slightly out of balance…

In the earlier stages of imbalance, small symptoms begin to show, such as headaches, allergies, aches, and back pains.

Why do you experience these symptoms?

Simple really…

Because body is trying to get rid of excess acid and it does it by trying to release acids through the skin, producing symptoms such as eczema, acne, boils, headaches, muscle cramps, soreness, swelling, irritation, inflammation, and general aches and pains.

Think about it…Do you ever have any problems when you feel you’re totally healthy? Let’s say you have been eating right, exercising, drinking plenty of water. Did you experience any of the symptoms mentioned above?

No, probably not.

And that’s because your body wasn’t too acidic and it didn’t try to get rid of the acid in any way.

Do you see what’s happening here.

You only feel sick and tired when your body is acidic. Reverse acidic body and you’re going to regain your health I guarantee you.

You just really need to do it.

Ok, moving on…

Let’s say you didn’t want to change your lifestyle to a more healthier one and you decided to take toxic medications to make yourself feel better.

Let’s see what happens then….

If you start to treat your symptoms, whatever they might be, with medications, pills, or antibiotics, the body becomes even more acidic than before.

That’s why when you take medications you can never totally relieve your problem because you’re not approaching the problem from the root cause you’re just covering up the symptoms with the medication. You may not feel the pain or discomfort for awhile or until medication wears off. But it returns as it always does.

As the imbalance continues to increase, more serious conditions arise, from obesity to all the major diseases such as heart disease, arthritis and cancer.

We are not a SICK NATION we are an ACIDIC NATION. They got it all wrong.

But on the other hand they probable don’t want you to get it right anyway.

Otherwise if you’re healthy then who is going to buy all their drugs and medications?

So they need sick people because they are their target audience.

In addition to sicknesses and diseases, recent research has shown that if you have an “acidic” body the aging process will be accelerated in your body, making it very difficult for you to retain a youthful appearance and a trim physique.

And don’t you want to look young and radiant?

I know for sure I do.

Let’s look at some other signs of the acidic body that so many people are experiencing today.

Signs and symptoms of an acidic environment inside the body include acid reflux, weight gain, diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), cardiovascular damage, including the constriction of blood vessels and the reduction of oxygen, premature aging, bladder and kidney conditions, including kidney stones, immune deficiency, acceleration of free radical damage, possibly contributing to cancerous mutations, joint pain, aching muscles and lactic acid buildup. Low energy and chronic fatigue, headaches, sinus problems, irritability, colds and flu are other symptoms of an over-acidic body.

Body is not intended to be on the acidic side that’s why it goes through great lengths trying to neutralize acid in the system using alkaline minerals.

But what happens when there are not enough of alkaline minerals in the body to neutralize the excess acid?

Here’s where we have another problem…

If more alkaline minerals are not supplied to the body to neutralize the acid, the body starts using available supplies from organs, bones, tissues and cells.

Let me give you an example…

Osteoporosis…Why does it happen in the first place?

When body trying to neutralize the excess acid in the system and can’t get enough alkaline minerals from foods you eat, it goes to the bones and starts to leach out calcium which is an alkaline mineral to neutralize the acid. Calcium deficiency in the bones increases making the bones weak and fragile. Result –> osteoporosis. They should have labeled it Acidic Bones Disease instead. At least it’s more descriptive and tells you exactly where the problem is.

Almost all diseases in the body caused by the excess acidity in the body. Correct that and you might be disease-free sooner than you think.
